Stress,mental breakdown, can’t sleep Watch
Does anyone have any tips I can use to get a grip back on things , thanks
With regards to sleep, it depends, if you can' t sleep because every time you try to sleep you panic about how you can't fall asleep then stop. I know this sounds like bull but my old therapist swore to me that if you are lying awake just letting your mind wander you are essentially in a very light sleep. This is because essentially it is doing what your mind does anyway while you are asleep. Just relax and stop counting how many hours it is until you have to get up. Let your mind wander. It works trust me.
If you can't sleep because of the doubts, hopefully doing the stuff I mentioned above will help. Try to out reason the logic your brain is creating
e.g. "I'm gonna fail all my exams" - I have organised myself to get on top of my exams and that won't happen, where is the proof that I will fail?
Please don't work yourself up too much, if your religious (I'm catholic) then handing over that stress and anxiety to God helps me but I understand not everyone sees the point in that.
Sheesh this is an essay and a half but please don't feel like you are alone in this because you are not, speak to your teachers or anyone because they want to help (its kinda their job)
Good luck, you'll be fine x
